I received an email today from the "Indianapolis 500 Festival" folks. It starts:
We are only 60 days away from the start of the nation’s largest half marathon. Are you ready?
I can't believe it is that close. My training has been spotty at best the past 8 weeks, but last week was a really good one mile-wise (18.35 for the week), and the next 60 days will be to. Although I'm not starting this week off so great.
Sophie was sick yesterday--nothing terrible, but she felt bad enough with a headache, low grade fever and tummy ache that the school called me to come pick her up. So that meant no gym for me yesterday afternoon. Today she's with me at the office again, but her fever has remained low and I think she'll be fine to go to the gym's day care after work. I'm hoping to run a solid 4 or 5 miles, just depends on how I'm feeling this afternoon.
Food has been spotty. I'm definitely in the "I need more serotonin" mode, and therefore eating way too many carbs. We had two gorgeous days over the weekend and I started to feel better with the sunshine and of course with the race on Saturday. But it's back to being dreary, rainy, and cold, and I'm PMSing. Basically it's a perfect storm for carb cravings.
In other random TV news... I watched the season finale of The Terminator last night. Have you guys been watching this? I was okay with the way it ended. (I thought the music for the FBI raid was completely out of place for the rest of the series, but that's a minor criticism, I suppose.) I hope it got decent ratings and they bring it back for a 2nd season. DH thinks Sarah Connor is too relaxed and smiles too much. He's probably right, but I still like her. Tonight is the premier of the 2nd season of Dirt. It's my guilty pleasure, and I can't wait to see what kinky, sleazy stuff they come up with this year. Oh, and American Idol starts again tonight with the top 16 this week. Boy, for someone who doesn't watch much TV, I've sure got a lot of shows on my list. And I'm also watching The Wire (season 3) on DVD.
